The assignment: Perform an ethical audit of a data science project. You may either choose a project that you are working on, or about to work on, or you can choose a real-life scenario for an organization / product of your choosing you have heard of or are familiar with. As part of this, you provide an analysis of ethical adherence, dangers of potential lapses, discuss likely impacts on the organization, the subjects, the data, and key stakeholder groups throughout the community. You may choose a project of your own, or you could take inspiration from a real case, problem, that an organization should consider in assessing its ethical compliance. You may also choose a completely hypothetical situation (e.g. assuming zoom would consider using recordings of calls to train artificial intelligence, or a car manufacturer would report back driving data to develop predictive driver assistance systems). Please also note that with the assignment, we do not neces-sarily look for cases of wrongdoing, rather we want you to go through a (stylized) application pro-cess to ethical boards in order to get permission to conduct data science projects.
